Been awhile since I've been over here for any other reason than GYWO, but like a lot of people, I have decided to just move on over. Now to figure out how to make this pretty, and get my stuff transferred off LJ. I will keep my LJ over there though because of GYWO, but really, the happy days of LJ are long gone.

Maybe this mass exodus from LJ and the Russians (really, I think I'd care less if not for the current mess with the Russians and the election) will spark a new surge of participation on here. Maybe?

I feel the same way. I'm not the best at keeping up with journals and stuff, but I have decamped for DW now.

There must be a style community or people who customize styles on DW.

Ask, and apparently I immediately find: [community profile] dreamwidthlayouts

I need to figure out how to transfer things over from LJ, too...just in case.

I've had this account forever, but haven't used it in years.

Maybe there will be more conversation here, as you say. I hope so. That would be great.

Importing is really easy. From the DW homepage, go to Organize and then Import Content. You need your username and password for LJ and then you tick boxes for what you want. Unless they're slammed, it takes a few minutes, even for massive journals.

I also think that if we didn't have the current political climate I wouldn't feel quite as nervous, except I still would think the English-speaking side of LJ would suffer. The very fact that the English TOS isn't legally binding says something. :P

I hope more people will poke around DW. It would be nice to get some more conversation going.

That's exactly why I decided to quit LJ - politics and hacking and all of that. When I was faced with agreeing to the non-legally binding TOS in order to access my journal I decided that I was done.

The thing that really pushed me is that my permanent account now has ads on it. I bought it so that it would never display ads, and now there's ads.

(I mean, also EVERYTHING ELSE, but that one thing really got under my skin.)

I'm over here, too.

Almost never post, but generally keep up with reading. :)

Damn them in so so so many ways.

I wouldn't stress about this if not for the political mess and all that. UGH.

I just read something about paid accounts still being handled by the division in California, but...I don't know.

I have a Dreamwidth account and could use it to follow people who don't cross-post. The problem is that I have so few free hours in the day, what with new job and all, that it's hard to check lots of blog sites.

Ohh what are you doing now? And yeah - I track those I want to see, like you :). When I started this job, the first year I had no time for anything - so exhausting!
